Words and music by
From the album Billion Dollar Babies (1973)
Transcribed by Richard Lindesay (soultomatch@hotmail.com)

Em9						B7/E
I love the dead before they're cold,
Em9						B7/E
Their blueing flesh for me to hold.
Em9						B7/E
Cadaver eyes upon me see nothing.


Em9						B7/E
I love the dead before they rise,
Em9						B7/E
No farewells, no goodbyes.
Em9						B7/E
I never even knew your now-rotting face.
Em9						B7/E
While friends and lovers mourn your silly grave.
Em9						B7/E
I have other uses for you, Darling.
